(A big step up from Internships)
Well, allows us to tell you about our company's culture first:
AL DÍA takes pride in having a work culture that respects and engages the individual's personal initiative and, in a very unique case in Philadelphia, prioritizes the growth of the apprentices as part of the strategy to create qualified, employable professional in our region, using the abundant talent coming from the 16 universities located in our city.
Philadelphia, today more than ever, needs a renovation of its workforce and we are helping from our shop senior students and graduates that need to bridge the gap between earning a diploma and landing that hard-to-come-by first work opportunity.
The apprenticeships, which required a full-time commitment for a period of 3 and up to 6 months, are in reality career springboard for those who are disciplined, focused, ambitious and motivated high performers.
If you are a brilliant, pragmatic, fast-working, juggler, great communicator who can take and use feedback, then this high-intensity group of collegial teammates may be the best environment for you to thrive and grow into positions in the staff of any media company in the city.
Apprentices join a mission-oriented, value-centered media training and dynamic news organization advancing high-quality journalism, technology innovation and business entrepreneurship in our city.
Be involved in everything that happens in AL DÍA office, from the mundane to the transformational, and be part of teams that form each month around our AL DÍA Idea Incubator activities, where you can learn from experienced AL DÍA Team members.
